I’m curious, when do you consider summer officially over? For many, it is when school is back in session which is usually mid to late August. For others, Labor Day is the last and final “hurrah” of summer, even though technically the first day of Fall isn’t until September 23. And if you live in the south, “summer” temperatures stretch well into October, with many pools and splash pads staying open for weeks after the first official day of fall.
Personally, I’m somewhere in the middle. Seeing big school supply displays at stores and the school bus start to roll through the neighborhood, definitely has me thinking of fall. But I really can’t get in the mood for all things fall, including craving fall foods, until well after Labor Day, when we finally get a *little* relief from the heat.
In fact, we have several more pool play dates, backyard barbecues and summer dinner parties to not only throw, but attend, and I plan on living my best summer life right up until I’m forced to accept all things pumpkin! Lol!
Since it is hotter than heck here and, like I said, will be for quite some time, no bake desserts and effortless meals are essential to our survival. Many times during the summer, when it actually gets too hot to grill, we rely on sandwiches or slow cooker meals (like my slow cooker carnitas) for easy family dinners or when hosting get togethers with friends.
And while a lot of people tend to serve ice cream or some kind of frozen treat for summer gatherings, since it is easy, no bake and ice cold, for us ice cream is actually huge hassle. Since it gets so darn hot here, 100+ degrees for days on end, and we live far from a grocery store, any ice cream we bought would be a puddle by the time we got home.
Instead, I like to serve Edwards Desserts, like Edwards Key Lime Pie and Edwards Turtle Pie, at our summer celebrations. Edwards Crème Pies are easy and convenient like ice cream (in fact they are found on the frozen dessert aisle of most grocery stores), yet are more sophisticated than ice cream and unlike ice cream, you don’t have to worry about these pies melting; simply thaw and serve!
In fact, I often keep a few Edwards Crème Pies on hand for not only easy summertime desserts, but to serve year round for Sunday supper with family or impromptu dinner parties with friends. While Edwards Crème Pies come in a variety of flavors, including Edwards® Cookies and Crème Pie, my family, loves the Edwards Turtle Pie, with a chocolate cookie crumb crust, a rich caramel filling and topped with chocolate, pecans, and whipped crème rosettes. We also really like, and my personal favorite, is the Edwards Key Lime Pie, made with a fresh-from-the-oven vanilla cookie crumb crust, real Key West lime juice and topped with whipped crème rosettes.
At our most recent family dinner, celebrating my cousin-in-law’s birthday, we whipped out a few Edwards Pies for dessert. I, of course, always look forward to a slice of the Edwards Key Lime Pie, but decided this time to have a little fun and transformed my slice of Edwards Key Lime Pie into another classic summer dessert, a Raspberry Key Lime Pie Milkshake!
Now, I know what you are thinking, “Wait a minute, didn’t you just say ice cream is a huge hassle?” Yup, I sure did!!
But here’s the fun part, this Raspberry Key Lime Pie Milkshake recipe doesn’t use ice cream!! Yet, it is one of the tastiest, creamiest, smoothest milkshakes I’ve had in ages!!! All thanks to three simple ingredients – Edwards Key Lime Pie, raspberries and milk!!
Lime and raspberry are two of my favorite flavor combinations and I just loved how this milkshake turned out! It is a great way to use up leftover pie or if you want to serve a showstopping and delicious dessert at your end of summer soirée!
